Senator takes Trump to court over Kavanaugh

Senator takes Trump to court over Kavanaugh

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) has filed suit against Donald Trump, as well as, among others, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the National Archives, and the Bush operative who is screening Kavanaugh’s records, Bill Burck, in federal court in D.C.

Merkley’s alleging that the White House has interfered with senators’ role in confirmation by withholding documents. It’s a separation of powers violation, he argues, in that the executive branch is keeping the legislature from its constitutionally mandated responsibility to provide “advice and consent.”

Kavanaugh records cannot be found
